AES Show Platinum Partner the P&E Wing Presents Open-to-All Event "Organizing Chaos: Top Engineers Discuss File Management"

Migrating to digital file-based audio has brought on a host of challenges in the organization and management of the burgeoning elements used to produce modern musical magic. "Once upon a time, engineers and their assistants just had to keep track of various reels of multi-track analog tapes, containing up to about 48 tracks per song, that were stored in easily labeled boxes," begins the P&E Wing's description of its AES Show Fall 2020 Audio Engineering Convention Special Event — open to all interested -- "Organizing Chaos: Top Engineers Discuss File Management," to be held online Thursday, October 22, at 3pm EDT. "Those boxes also included track sheets (!) which used a common language to explain what was on each track," the description continues. "Of course, that's ancient history. Now, the number of tracks is pretty much unlimited, many sessions have no assistants, and engineers use their own proprietary ways of file labeling and management. Often, chaos ensues." The value of organized assets is being further illuminated as artists and labels increasingly look to repurpose legacy assets for new formats like Dolby Atmos┬« and to capitalize on unreleased materials. The panel will address the issues and recommend solutions.
